Anyone remember this gem, the $1 million bus stop on Columbia Pike. It doesn’t even offer any weather protection. I pass it every day. Someone’s pocket got fat on this project and it was when they were pushing the failed street car idea. Trying to pass U/L off as an alternative to mass transit will never work. Why not just set up (free) slug lines to metro stops in that instance?
We must be neighbors. ?I'm 5 minutes from that. I laugh every time I see a homeless person sacked out there.* My tax dollars at work.
*Before some snowflake gets their panties in a bunch, let me clarify. I volunteer at a homeless shelter. Not laughing at someone's misfortune. Laughing at the symbol of government waste being used as an open air bed.
That boondoggle is an excellent advertisement for everything that's been wrong with Arlington govt for years...We must be neighbors. ?
That bus stop is a joke when you know it cost $1 million. Complete front for local government kickbacks.
I visited a friend one day in Arlington County.
Parked my car as a visitor in her garage.
A few weeks later, I get a letter from Arlington County stating that since I garage my car regularly in Arlington, I must be mindful to make sure to report that I live there and to make sure I am paying taxes.
I wrote them a letter stating that, undo NO terms will I EVER move to Arlington County.
EVER. If that's their way of making sure they get their tax dues. By harassing people visiting friends assuming they are residents.
